kind of self-explanatory, right? We seem to have some impressive thread-wrappers that lurk around this board. let's try to keep your "first booger" posts at a minimum.

Eyes....what are you using to attach those?

I am a Tear Mender fan, but I am always looking for improvements. But not using a motor improvement, mind.

The eyes on these I used fabric fusion. It (usually) works well on flexible heads b/c it is flexible as well. The heads on these have a light coating of t-shirt paint to give them some shape/texture and glitter. A good dollop of fabric fusion usually holds them solid, but it takes a while to set up. Cue the problem when the drying wheel motor craps out...should have just stuck them to the t-shirt paint, which is what I usually do on these when I’m tying them for my box.

Ok, it was really fabric fusion first, then some thick CCG after readjusting the sagging piece of shit eyes after the motor crapped out, and then covered with more t-shirt paint to try and hide the mistakes. At least I think they'll swim.

Your flyties look great. Way to go. We have the bait fish

There was an attempt to spin up a pattern called the emotion detector. Horrible name and even worse execution. Tying a rabbit strip to another rabbit strip around a needle was stupid and the end result wasn't as gratifying as a simple craft fur baitfish. So, no cone heads. Just these green eyed devils. These are my level best

I still have to write out a recipe card but I'll post them soon

And it's the last of the silly suckless stickies

Cheers, fukkos
